Shinkichi Takahashi is one of the truly great figures in world poetry. In the classic Zen tradition of economy, disciplined attention, and subtlety, Takahashi lucidly captures that which is contemporary in its problems and experiences, yet classic in its quest for unity with the Absolute. Lucien Stryk, Takahashi’s fellow poet and close friend, here presents Takahashi’s complete body of Zen poems in an English translation that conveys the grace and power of Takahashi’s superb art.
